Trot Ol' Joe

Trot Ol' Joe.  Trot Ol' Joe.
You ride better than any horse I know.
Trot Ol' Joe.  Trot Ol' Joe.
You're the best horse in the country-o.
Whoa... Joe!

Here is a fun video I found featuring the song "Trot Ol' Joe.  We had fun singing this song, although we did NOT do the part where we all fall backwards. We were sitting too close together to do this part of the song without bumping heads!  You might like to try this at home, where you have more room to pull back on the reins and yell, "Whooooooa!"

  If You're a Cowboy and You Know It
(tune: "If You're Happy and You Know It")
If you're a cowboy and you know it, shout "yee-haw." (YEE-HAW!)
If you're a cowboy and you know it, shout "yee
-haw." (YEE-HAW!)
If you're a cowboy and you know, then your face will surely show it.
If you're a cowboy and you know it, shout "yee
-haw." (YEE-HAW

If you're a cowboy and you know it, rope a cow.... (swing arm above head as though using a lasso)
If you're a cowboy and you know it, ride a horse.... (pretend to hold reins in front of you as you trot)

It's hard to believe the end of the school year is upon us.  A BIG Thank You to Molly and the teachers for inviting the Bellevue Public Library to come to Welcome School each month!  I have looked forward to every visit, knowing that I would return to work with a smile on my face!  I want to wish everyone a safe and blessed summer.  I'd love to see you at the library - come anytime you can!
